Reducing Coke Formation on Hydrotreating Catalysts
Coke formation is the deposition of hydrogen deficient carbonaceous material over the catalyst surface. Generally, it is formed by thermal condensation, de-hydrogenation, and polymerization reactions of hydrocarbons. The coke covers...
Effects of Feed Metals on Hydrotreating Catalysts
The feedstock of the Hydrotreating unit contains metal contaminants along with Sulfur and Nitrogen. These metallic compounds are a challenge for the catalyst performance and can damage the catalyst activity...
